Dinner for six please...

The Pepperoni Pizza Rolls are all over the internet. I first saw it on Pinterest, where the pin I used took me to THIS site. I will not post the recipe, please refer to the link for that. 

This post simply is a review.

I am almost overcome with joy when I stumble upon a recipe that my entire family will eat. So when I prepared this delightful meal, I was excited over the fact that a fist fight almost broke out over the last piece. 

You know you have found a winning recipe when someone is willing to inflict bodily harm on another for the last piece. ha ha!

So click over for the recipe and head to the grocery store because this recipe is sure to delight!

*served with a side of veggies and fruit, this 9x13 pan fed my family of six.

Pizza Bread...

It is rare to find a meal that my whole family of six will actually eat.

As rare as a boy putting the toilet seat down.

I am talking rare.

So imagine my delight when my Dad reports to me that ALL four of my kiddos devoured a dish he created!

The recipe is crazy simple, so simple that the children can prepare it while I sit with my feet propped up reading a magazine.

Ok. Ok. A girl can dream right?

My 8 and 11 year olds are fully capable of preparing these without assistance.

Loaf of Sliced French Bread
Small Can Tomato Sauce
Shredded Cheese 8oz
Pepperoni Slices, diced (optional)

Spray a pan lightly with cooking spray. Preheat oven to 350. Arrange sliced bread on pan. Add 1 small spoonful of tomato sauce to each slice of bread. Add diced pepperoni. Top with shredded cheese. Bake for 5-7 minutes or till cheese is melted. Do not bake too long, you want bread to be soft.

*i add a teaspoon of Italian seasonings to my sauce. The whole loaf feeds my family of 6 when we add a fruit and veggie to the meal. Save money by buying the reduced sale bread and freezing it. Pull loaf out when ready, you can cook from frozen.
